HC Deb 20 October 1975 vol 898 c49W
Mr. Thorne

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether she is able to publish figures in respect of the number of dismissal from a doctor's list issued to patients by the area health authority for the Preston area.

Dr. Owen

Since June 1974, 290 patients in Preston have been notified that their doctor has requested the removal of their names from his list. I am seeking further information about this from the Lancashire Family Practitioner Committee, and will write to my hon. Friend.
